It's hard to find good quality, read-along books anymore.

Kids who want a bedtime story from exhausted parents can just listen or follow along in the book until they fall asleep.
Toys 4 Life
Very nice book with stories that my 4-year-old son likes to listen to on the CD.

Together in one entire book are many reader's childhood favorite books from Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed to Martha Speaks. The Family Storybook Treasury has numerous books that will leave you feeling nostalgic and looking for a child to pass them along to. Enjoy an afternoon of reading with your favorite child as you turn the pages of this fantastic compilation.

Coming from someone who's shelves are usually packed to the brim the Family Storybook Treasury was an easy book to add to our collection. Who can resist not only one picture book, but half a dozen put together into one very delightful compilation? I certainly couldn't and my son and daughter have both enjoyed reading this one. We do have a couple of favorites: Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, Martha Speaks and Tacky the Penguin are our top three and the ones that get read over and over again. As a parent, though the size of the book is a daunting 300 pages, this is still a marvelous addition to our home library if for no other reason than the versatility it provides within one bound book. Not to mention the fact that it's packed with magnificent authors and illustrators.

Family Storybook Treasury: Tales of Laughter, Curiosity, and Fun has been a delightful addition to our home library and one that I'm positive will be read again and again as it's passed down from child to grandchild in the years to come. There's no doubt there will be a favorite amidst the over half a dozen full picture books included within it's pages, but regardless there will be numerous stories to be enjoyed by one and all. This has been a wonderful reading experience to have with both of my kiddos because not only are the authors and illustrators wonderful, but the versatility allows for hours of reading without losing the attention of those young readers. Definitely a picture book collection that should be added to everyone's home library.

I agree with reviewer "Toys 4 Life" that publishers should offer more quality read-along books with audio CDs. I got my 4-year old this Curious George Complete Adventures Deluxe Book and CD Gift Set first and he loved it so much that I started to look for something similar. I'm not a huge Disney/Pixar (etc.) book fan, so this was the only collection that caught my attention.
We were not disappointed. The story about Curious George seems a bit dull compared with the ones in the other set, but all in all my son really enjoys the stories. The poems didn't interest him much at the beginning, but because they're only short "stops" between two stories, he has been listening and is starting to like them, too.
As for page turning signals - they really would have been a must! I don't agree that you have to sit down with your child always and listen to the CD together. When I sit down with him, I read to him myself. This CD is for the times I'm upstairs putting his little brother to bed, for instance.
So I spent a night inserting the page turning signals myself. It's not that hard. Convert the tracks into mp3s ("Audiograbber" is freeware), then open up an audio editing program (I used the freeware "Audacity"). Choose an audio file for a page turning signal, open it, mark it and press copy. Next, open the mp3s and paste your signal in the right places. It took me about 2 hours altogether, and now my son sits there happily turning his pages.

Very nice book with stories that my 4-year-old son likes to listen to on the CD. The only issue is that there are not any page turn signals so he can't "read" the stories by himself. Otherwise, nice book with 8 stories and 8 poems.

My son loves this book and CD.i would buy again. He does not care for the poems much, but maybe later.

It's hard to find good quality, read-along books anymore. I initially borrowed this from the local library. My son loves it. The stories are longer and it has ONE disc with all the stories, so it's easy to bring in the van.
